Yum! I headed over to Medelhavsmuseet (the Mediterranean Museum) to enjoy the neo-classical interior of the museum and some lunch at their Bagdad Café. The museum, located in central Stockholm, has a beautiful collection of ancient and historical artifacts from the Mediterranean countries, from Mesopotamia and Egypt to the early Christian and Islamic cultures. Even though I travel frequently, it’s like a vacation in itself that can be just as fun without actually going anywhere.
The salads are absolutely delicious, a must try for anyone who finds themselves in the city! I ordered this stylish baba ganoush that always hits the spot when I’m craving something fresh, full of flavors and tasty textures.

The recipe for those brave enough to give it a go themselves:
Oven bake an aubergine until soft.
Using a food processor mix in dill, garlic, chilli, bread and last flip in feta cheese.
*Remember when using the food processor not to make it too smooth. It should have a slightly chunky texture in the end.
